    dat 2 extra hp is much obliged... awww man ;___; no armor pen tho?

  • #91 dnagemo

    The passive entrap is quite good for farming junglers , but what about ganking junglers who don't usually farm and don't have time to restore their hp?

    p.s.Wriggles is still bad

  • #90 KesslerCOIL

    Not that it makes Warwick any more relevant but he can now solo dragon with just spirit stone and ninja tabi.
    Just farm up the jungle, buy spirit stone the moment you hit 400gold. Then farm till ninja tabi and go get dragon, you lose almost no hp.

    Lulu: Pls Riot, people MUST be polimorphed into POROS!

  • #81 Kmac7

    I'm surprised no one realizes the change to spirit stone makes pantheon a solid jungler now aws opposed to an all-in ganker as a jungler

  • #93 IONDragonX

    Actually, new Spirit Stone makes anybody into a jungler. I've personally tested Talon and Karthus so far. SS gives you basically infinite sustain to jungle as long as you want.

  • #68 IONDragonX

    Ho-Okay guys, I just tested out the new Elder Lizard. My opionion is :

    This new SEL is very good for certain junglers. I was able to continuously farm the jungle using Talon while ignoring blue buff and having only this one item. It works for Hecarim, too, who becomes a jungle farming beast. Nothing strange about the runes/masteries. Just 9/15/6 taking move speed and Mp5. AD reds and quints, CDR blues.

    I particularly like how the source of the damage doesn't matter. Smite earns back a nice big chunk of Health and Mana.

    It is balanced as well. As soon as I left the jungle to gank and used my entire ability combo, my mana dropped like a stone.

    Edit : I just tried Jungle Karthus with the Spectral Wraith version. So help me, you can clear jungle forever without blue buff. That said, if you are casting at anything other than monsters, you'll find yourself out of mana very quickly.

    It sucks on every mid laner. The true damage burn only triggers with physical damage and the health and mana drain only functions on jungle monsters. You get no health or mana from minions or champions.

  • #71 Loinator

    If the mid laner is in the jungle... 

    Read the item description man.

  • #72 aguyyouknow

    uh, he said wraith, not lizard. The AP one that's supposed to be for AP junglers? No idea if it's actually OP on them or not, though (I would be surprised for the same reasons that you pointed out, but hey, who knows).

  • #73 RamserX

    monsters != minions

    not Lizard i meant Wraiths currently i dont have PBE acces so i cant test it myself but i meaning u basicly get a 2000 Gold ite that provides you 50 ap 10 mpen 10Cdr and a bit extra Gold as a midlaner basicly every midlaner can use it like this

    you lost some health go to the wraiths camp burst it down heal a bit (u will loose more mana than u gain but get at least some of the costs back) and you basicly can get 40 extra goldon every wraith clear you are going to do

    Ah. Well, if you are going to play for a 45 minute game, then sure, have your mid laner spend 15 minutes to farm up a gold item that has no sustain in lane and no defensive stats whatsoever. Just know that your opponent will be building burst mage items (NLR+Dorans Ring costs about the same) and be calling for ganks on you. With no MR, Health or Armor, a good jungler will be happy to dive you while the enemy mid blasts you to kingdom come.

    The item in question allows the mid to take wraiths or wolves and break even on health and mana. It does NOT allow them to go back to lane "recharged" by any means.

  • #80 Action113137

    Wait what? The item on PBE would be WORSE for a mid laner than it is on live currently. You lose the regen, and it already provides 8% hp/mp returned on monsters in its current form. The only thing buffed is the 10 mpen, which doesn't seem game breaking to me. Or if you plan to be farming the jungle a ton instead of, you know, killing champions.

    If you think the PBE version would be so OP, you should probably buy it and go mid now on live for free wins before they change it.

  • #89 sashakEE

    question for you good sir - do those changes make the jungler items actually worse (than they were before) when going out of the jungle as you don't have the passive health/mana reg anymore and actually gotta go back to jungling to restore health/mana?

     

    /I dont jungle so I really dunno :D

    Yes, they are pretty bad for laners. If you get low health in lane because all you have is an SotEL or SotSW, you can try to go into the jungle to get more health BUT YOU WILL FAIL. These items allow you to break even while jungling or slowly regen while jungling. If you take that long out of your lane, then say goodbye to your tower before you go.

  • #97 jhawkjayhawk

    jungle talon.... YES!!!

  • #64 Dj0z

    My beloved Shard of True Ice is back!... on a lulu skin. And it has a flying poro too. Omg omg

    EDIT: And finally a wriggles buff, albeit minor. Tests will tell if the return on investment happens early enough now.

    Thought experiment : You have a choice of two items. One gets you gold if you will ignore game objectives. The other gives you stats that enable you to be better at getting game objectives as well as bonus gold occasionally. It is also well known that game objectives award you gold. --- Which one sounds like the better item?
